This study will determine the safety and efficacy of using blood-flow restriction exercise enhancement (B-FREE) to overcome persistent quadriceps muscle weakness that occurs following a total knee replacement (TKR).
This study aims to determine the safety and efficacy of using B-FREE to overcome persistent quadriceps muscle weakness that occurs following a TKR. We hypothesize that B-FREE can provide a safe training stimulus and offer a home-based program to restore quadriceps muscle strength and improve functional mobility. Specifically, subjects that have a TKR will perform B-FREE at home (light weights with resistance bands and walking) 3x/wk for 10 weeks. Quadriceps muscle strength, balance, and functional mobility will be assessed before and after the program. Changes in these variables will be compared to healthy age-matched uninjured controls.
